Tropical Fruit Discussion / Psidium germination tips
« on: April 26, 2023, 02:49:15 PM »
I've collected psidium species in the past four months, and not one has sprouted.

I have had them in moist peat moss in the warm Fl sun for about 1-2 months; the seeds are still hard, not rotten. Should I soak them in ga3 for a day?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Best tasting Plinia?
« on: March 23, 2023, 12:06:18 PM »
Looking to start a collection of them soon but due to seed-to-fruit time being so long on this genus id rather wait a long while for the best tasting ones instead of random varieties.

Let me know

Right now Iím focusing on psidiums

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Thoughts on 9waters?

Would you say their prices are good? Reasonable? Great? Seedlings healthy etc?

Similar to the Asunta line, is anyone working on their range of hybrids or breeding line for special traits such as the sweetest fruit, fastest-growing, (I forgot the term but) a plant that flowers early or heavily, etc.
My first hybrid to start my breeding line is Monocanthus x Undatus

If you do breed df, what tips do you have? What genetics to get into my line next? what genetics to leave out? These were just some questions I thought of just now.

Sold out before I found out the site was back up, anyone have any for sale? Seeds or seedling

Knowing my luck fruitsy farms would be back up and of course, I missed out on the things I wanted to get while in stock.

Does anyone have seeds for this Annona?

At what age do they usually flower?

I donít want any leaves or anything to end up making their dogs sick, considering all parts of theobroma affect them

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What's your favorite fruiting shrub?
« on: August 25, 2022, 12:06:21 AM »
Broadening my search for ďfruit treesĒ that grow well in pots, Iím looking for uncommon/ rare fruiting shrubs, so far the only fruiting shrub (or tree that can be grown as a shrub) I have is Psidium myrtoides(supposedly sweet)

Blood orange, orange, mandarin and lemon. I grew out seedlings for these in hopes of one day grafting branches of them to another mature (what seems to be a seedling) citrus that I have in ground at home. The fruit it makes taste like soap, so instead of cutting it down and wasting rootstock I was thinking I could graft to, then I found ought citrus grafting is ďhardĒ so Iím not sure what to do now other than discard all my seedlings, chop the tree down and buy grafted trees.

I plan to keep it in a pot, but becuase it takes so many years (which I canít remember) to bear fruit, Iíve been neglecting it and keeping it in a small pot. I want a jaboticaba but Iím not sure which are the best tasting, fastest fruiting, and grow well in pots

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Atemoya pollinated by rollina?

Has anyone ever heard of this cross taking place?


Sorry if this shouldnít be discussed here, I wonít name anyone, I donít want to start any problems. To break this down in the simplest way possible, Bought a plant from a seller here, seller ships plant with bamboo stick in pot, bamboo stick literally churns up the root system of the plant in shipping, plant dies 7 days later, before plant died asked seller for advice to save it, followed sellers advice, plant obviously still died. Seller insist I send him the plant back to get my refund, I say sure, but itís dead already. He asked if I used fertilizer (why would I use fertilizer on a rare tree seedling?) I say no, I did nothing to the plant. He says heís gonna ďtest the soilĒ.

 He sends me instructions to get a return slip. No return slip link on my PayPal activity page for the money I sent. Decided to dispute with PayPal. I tell him I did. He sends me my money back, ask me to never buy from his store again, then blocks me, after that he unblocks to tell me I killed the tree then blamed it on the bamboo stake, and then insists that I added fertilizer to the pot and killed the plant (which I didnít) ( and whoís stopping him from adding fertilizer to the pot when I ship him the plant and he just, you know, lies about it? Itís a lose lose for me)

I had firmly agreed to return the plant, yet he states I didnít want to return the plant, (which explains why I supposedly added fertilizer to a tiny pot with a tiny rare SEEDLING that is extremely sensitive for god knows what reason?)

Funny enough, he tells me good luck etc etc and if I had a problem on the first day I should said something instead of a week later. Itís funny considering I did say something and he left me on read FOUR WHOLE DAYS.

Now tell me, based on what youíve read. Am I just some bad person, or did I have valid reasons for wanting my refund? I have visual proof, and screenshots of every step of our conversations. Every single message, the dates, everything. Iíve learned to keep track of stuff like that from sellers whoíd act like certain things werenít said etc.

I donít want any bad blood from anyone, I got a damaged product, I got my money back. There no issue. What I donít want is a tarnished reputation and ending up being blacklisted by other sellers because Iím the guy who ďkills his trees and blamed the sellerĒ Iíd rather not have that. Thank you for reading.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Creating a canopies for my trees
« on: July 10, 2022, 08:37:49 PM »
Iíve been experimenting pruning leaves off my annonas to for them to spring back and create new branch leads, what do you guys think about these 3? Iím not sure what canopies are the best for each annona, or any plant

Ilama, Lisa seedling and sugar apple(squamosa)

Iím making a list of all the plants I want to grow in pots, and itís looking hefty. I realize itís mostly just trees, so Iíd like a list of good shrub fruits that are just haves in Florida

This is the list so far of plants I want but havenít acquired yet


Annona Neosalicifolia

Duguetia stenatha

Manilkara Bella

Duguetia sp maranjo yellow

Annona monticola

Annona deceptrix

Duguetia lanceolata

Annona ubatubenensis

Annona warmigiana

Annona dolapretela

Annona sylvatica

Annona Crassiflora

Lemon drop mangosteen


Jamaican strawberry tree

Miracle fruit

Solanum pachyandrum

Peanut butter fruit

Blackberry jam fruit

Ice cream bean



Eugenia parrisii


Honey dew melon




Strawberry guava

Lemon guava

Psidium sp longipetiolatum

Psidium sartoranum

If not, I hope itís an annona, I had Cornifolia seeds mixed up in potting mix for a few of these because I thought the seeds died, or maybe itís another psidium that just germinated, who knows. Gonna wait it out and see

Looking for annona salzmanii seedlings or seeds please

Iíve taken notice to the grass here, Iíve always wondered why it was so ever green as a kid and had so much beige boots throughout the grass fields, layouts. Itís a soft think strand grass. We use to calm it mountain grass when I was younger. Mango trees grow absolutely gigantic here, other trees we planted 5 years ago are at incredible heights. I came to Florida and took a great interests to dragon fruit( I have multiple varieties) and I think I found Hylocereus Tetragonus in one of my old backyards.

Annona is absolutely EVERYWHERE, soursop, custard apple and sweetsop. Sadly the trees are very, VERY old, and nobody is pruning them to get strong sugar apple branches, the custard apple tree in my old backyard is well over 18 years old, never had a fruit from it but my parents have.  didnít see fruit or
flowers on it today, soursops seem to have been in season already but I still soursop flowers everywhere.

The sugar apples across Trelawny are in awful shape. Iíve seen probably over 30 trees today, all black small rotted fruit, very weak branches. Educated a fruit enthusiast about annona hybrids today. He never knew the three he had were related.

Star apple is definitely in season here, my Grandmas house and area has several trees probably 10 plus years old, filled to brim with over 100 fruit, maybe 300. Picked 6 or so due to the tree being incredibly tall and on a steep hill.

Young coconuts all over the place. Coconut trees in Florida are much taller and wider. (Not talking about dwarfs)

Iíve been looking for some real hardcore tropical fruit thatís hard to find in Florida, no luck so far. Quite disappointed as I took it for granted a kid and a lot of fruit trees that were here have cut down, especially species that get huge and take years to bear.

im not sure which would be easier, I hear the seeds dont last long out of the fruit. Anyone selling any? Can it grow in pots? I hear it fruits in 3 years?

I have Grimal Jabo that's about a year old, not very big, wanted to grow it out until it has many large branches (instead of one main stem and small twig-like branches) so I can graft different Plinia to it eventually, just need a source for scions that I can get scions from when the time comes
